Updating the q system for nmt

13 Aug

The original IEEE 802.16 standard (now called "Fixed Wi MAX") was published in 2001.

Wi MAX adopted some of its technology from Wi Bro, a service marketed in Korea.

However, this is not a complete list of devices available as certified modules are embedded into laptops, MIDs (Mobile Internet devices), and other private labeled devices.

Wi MAX gateway devices are available as both indoor and outdoor versions from several manufacturers including Vecima Networks, Alvarion, Airspan, Zy XEL, Huawei, and Motorola.

These are inherent to the Wi MAX standard rather than being added on as Carrier Ethernet is to Ethernet.

Additionally, given the relatively low costs associated with the deployment of a Wi MAX network (in comparison with 3G, HSDPA, x DSL, HFC or FTTx), it is now economically viable to provide last-mile broadband Internet access in remote locations.Wi MAX is more similar to Wi-Fi than to other 3G cellular technologies.The Wi MAX Forum website provides a list of certified devices.The new company hopes to benefit from combined services offerings and network resources as a springboard past its competitors.The cable companies will provide media services to other partners while gaining access to the wireless network as a Mobile virtual network operator to provide triple-play services.
